Salute Your Inner Sun

With the sunny days of June ahead, we are excited to bask in the brightness and warmth of the sun. So much, in fact, that we are dedicating the studio theme this month to Surya or the sun. According to many of the oldest surviving hymns of the yogic texts, Surya is considered “the rising sun” and the dispeller of darkness. Over the course of thousands of years, the word and meaning of Surya has slightly varied. But what has stood the test of time and culture is Surya’s ability to transform. Read More

Here are 3 reasons to take your practice onto the water this summer:

The sun has just risen, and there’s a quiet softness to the light and air as you roll out of bed and put on your morning coffee, tea, or lemon water. There’s something special about each breath you take as you ease into the day gently and deliberately, brush your teeth, wash your face, get dressed. The air outside has finally taken on the warmth of an endless summer with the subtle tint of dewy crispness at sunrise. It’s the perfect day for a yoga practice on the water. Read More
